Zero to 60 timing info from Edmunds!

Some of you have mentioned not being able to duplicate the stated 0 to 60 time of 3.8 seconds. According to Edmunds, from the article titled "2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Z51 Suspension Walkaround" dated July 24, 2013, it stated; "Josh promptly equaled GM's straight-line acceleration claims of a 12-second quarter-mile and zero to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds AFTER EXCLUDING THE SAME 1 FOOT OF INITIAL DRAG STRIP ROLLOUT THEY DEDUCT. But rollout and zero mph are mutually exclusive concepts; THE TRUE ZERO-MEANS-ZERO-TO-60 FIGURE IS 4.1 SECONDS!"

So obviously there is some constructive working with numbers here! I just wanted to post this to help clear up the confusion and because there have been multiple questions about it! I hope this helps in some small way!

As I had posted elsewhere on our forum, I ran two back to back opposite direction 0-60 runs with RedHot. I used the on board 0-60 timer, had her in Tour and did not use Launch Control and tires were warm, low humidity and in the low 70 degree ambient temps. Both runs were 4.2 seconds. I am fairly confident that I could do better and shave a ten of a second or possibly two by trying a combination of the following: use Track Mode, Launch Control, push her harder (that is more vigorously stomp the gas), increase engine revs prior to releasing brakes, etc. :cool:
Interesting Mecholova. That is an amazing time, better than I have seen others achieve. He must have done the runs quite a while before taking the photo since his engine temp, oil temp and tac red line indicate a very cold car.
